The ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA (AWM) will make it TV, when the 36th ANNUAL GRACIE AWARDS GALA will air on the HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL on AUGUST 8th, then again as a daytime encore on AUGUST 12th.
The GRACIE AWARDS "recognize exemplary programming created for women, by women, and about women in all facets of media, including radio, television, cable and new media." The awards program also encourages the realistic and multifaceted portrayal of women in entertainment, news, features and other programs.
"ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA is thrilled that, for the first time, the GRACIES GALA will be televised to a national audience," said AWM Chair VALERIE K. BLACKBURN. "It is especially exciting to be shown on the HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL because of their commitment to high quality programming that shows realistic portrayals of strong women."
